Allowing guests to vote without stealing registered nicknames
for a certain period, the comment section of my blog was for registered users only.
Everyone had their own nickname and we all lived in peace, flowers and harmony.
Then, I decided to allow guests to vote as well and a war started: a couple of users started commenting as guests under the nickname of registered users. It was a giant mess, nobody would understand when something said was true from the original person or a troll.
It was super funny, but people got pissed so I have to fix this.
How can I set WPdiscuz so that guests cannot take already registered nicknames as their own?
i have a simlilar Problem with that: if a Guest uses a regigstrated Nickname, wpDicuz show the Avatar from that member!
With std. comment-function, only a std. Avatar is viewed!
We hide user-Titels on our Page, so it is not clear, from where the comment came!
Is there a solution for that? i would assume, that deactivating individual Avatars for Guests would be a must have...?
Thx for your answer Tom. Yes you are right.
Because of the possibility to modify the Form for wpDiscuz, it would be a good solution, if you could disable the E-Mail Field, if it is'nt set to required.
Or is there another Plugin, what i can add to your Plugin? I can't find one!
For me it makes no sense, that unregistrated Users can use a registrated Member-Name AND can use his Avatar, if hie know the E-Mail of that user!
I would like to prevent this in combination with using your great plugin!
